Turner Brooks has been an associate professor at the Yale School of Architecture since 1991. His architectural firm was started in Starksboro, Vt. in 1972. In the early stages the firm both designed and built a great number of residential and small institutional projects for local communities. As the work gained in volume and received recognition, the office expanded and moved to Burlington, Vt. in 1983. In 1996 the office was established in New Haven, Conn. At that time, Eeva Pelkonen joined the firm as collaborator on all recent projects. In 1998, Michael Curtis formerly Campus Architect at Wesleyan University, joined as part of the successful effort to win the Yale University's Boathouse Competition. The firm is currently involved with institutional, public and residential work in the New England states.
A talk to discuss Turner Brooks' works will be held at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 18, at Houghton House Room 212.
A graduate of the Yale School of Architecture, the principal Turner Brooks enjoys a national reputation for the excellence of his designs which have been widely published both in international architectural journals and in the popular press such as Architectural Record, Progressive Architecture, Architectural Digest 100 Architects (a special issue celebrating the worlds foremost architects), and Global Architecture.
